Description If I had entries in this diary to make again, they would be written in a kindlier spirit. E. D. Kane.t41 St George, Sunday.t42 He is recovering. *xxx #XXX Tom on his part had another cause for anxiety: the prospect of leaving us so far from home. The distance seemed so much greater when he thought that there would be no one to protect us, and that the people among whom we would be left were aliens in all their sympathies. I was able to reassure him on this head. I already feel far more at home here, and have learned to know and appreciate his poor friends, especially-and-more as he does himself. I thought myself a pretty good nurse, but I have learned lessons from them, (the Mormons) I was too anxious not to sit up myself at night, but the volunteer nurses sat in an adjoining room to come at my call at an instant's notice.

Brigham Young's party left St. George on Febru- ary 17 and arrived in Salt Lake City on February 27. "?This entry through the next one labeled "Thursday" has the appearance of a letter. The last sentence and other notations in the entries suggest this may be the case and that it was written to Elizabeth's daughter Harriett. 168
